Re: Rapana to miss six months with shoulder injury

You reckon the roosters or Broncos would be denied before an operation or rehab has even commenced!!

Surely a decision isn't made so quick.
What if the op goes all wrong and he gets a bad infection?

I think if they amputated his arm the NRL would somehow deny us.

Re: NRL ban Jack Wighton for 10 matches, impose $30,000 fine

Tear up his contract and give the money to Johnson.

Halves are more in need of strengthening and harder to find.
Bummer with Rapa's injury but he or Cotric can play FB till something else evolves.
